Major Crash Detectives are investigating a single vehicle rollover, 10 kilometres west of Lajamanu, which has claimed the life of a 14-year-old girl.

Senior Sergeant Mark Casey said the crash occurred around 2.00pm yesterday afternoon.

“The circumstances surrounding the crash remain under investigation but early indications suggest the young female was thrown from the vehicle during the rollover.

“The girl was transported to the Lajamanu Clinic where she passed away a short time later.
